An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Nauset Light'
Oil Plein Air
Cape Cod National Seashore,
Eastham, Cape Cod, MA
9 x 12

Because of erosion that has been occurring along the shoreline
of Cape Cod, some of the light houses have been moved
further inland so that they are protected.  The sea was
to the right of this view of Nauset Light, but not
close enough to include in the painting.

I took a walk down to the beaches after finishing this painting
and saw a group of seals playing in the sparkling water!

So nice Claire! Isn't it lovely to hear the sounds of the seagulls and waves as you paint?

Lovely! I will always remember the buses and people that came by that day and admired your painting. You were smart in only showing a little bit of the house. I Love your greens. You are such a master of greens!
